♪ a good evening to you and welcome back to this special edition of "world news." tonight we are remembering nelson mandela, a man who changed this world. president obama saying just hours ago he no longer belongs to us, he belongs to the ages. at 95, his death not a surprise, but the lessons of his life still reverbrating around the globe, that long walk to freedom, brimming with humility, resilient, a determination to forgive. and there has been a huge outpouring of emotion, reaction from around the world tonight, our team there starting with abc's chief foreign correspondent terry moran who
6:01pm
joins us right now from london. terry? >> reporter: it is a profound moment for south africa and really for the world, the marking of the passing of this remarkable man and of the end of an era in human grace and dignity. in south africa itself, in the neighborhood which was a segregated township where nelson mandela lived before he went to prison for 27 years and where he went home to. there is a combination of mourning, of sorrow and celebration and gratitude, people gathering outside of his home and dancing, celebrating the life of nelson mandela. reaction pouring in from around the world for his life from the great and the powerful and the rest of us. there have been more than 4 million tweets about nelson mandela. you mentioned president obama's comment, an amazing scene here in london, the premier of the movie in london, the long walk to freedom, prince william and
6:02pm
the duchess of cambridge in attendance, in the end the star came out and told everyone that nelson mandela had died. prince william said it had was a sad and tragic moment, reminding him of what an extraordinary inspiring man nelson mandela was. then an amazing reaction as well from f.w. de klerk, the white supreme cyst fierce apartheid president who cut the deal with nelson mandela to get him out of prison and then lost the presidential election to him. he paid his tribute at the end saying tata, we will miss you, using the african term for father, recognizing that nelson mandela is the father of his country. there is expected to be a funeral in a week. he'll lie in state. diane? >> terry moran reporting in from london tonight. "good morning america" co-anchor, robin roberts joins once again. we were talking about his smile, his vitality. he loved food. he loved dance. he loved music. he loved american movies. >> he loved it all. primarily he loved his children.
6:03pm
it was so hard for him to be away and both of his wives that i talked to expressed that and how difficult and that's why he wanted so much family time when he was released from prison after all those years. on one of my recent visits, it was one when they received the bid for the world cup. unfortunately, nelson mandela was not able to go as they thought, so i sat down with graca machel, again married on his 80th birthday, many would say the truth love of his life and i asked her the lasting impact, the powerful impact of her husband. >> madiba will be remembered as the visionary leader who with humility was able to take the challenge of bringing together parts which had been by history and the making of people so far away from one another.
6:04pm
it takes a lot of courage and persuasion to say we have no other way. we have to accept one another. that's precisely where his leadership made a huge difference. to take into account every single life of a south african was important, it needed to be protected. he laid his own life for that. >> because he did, that resonated with the south african people, because they realized what he went through. again, for him to come from that and not be bitter and to want to reconcile and want peace and equality for all races, that really has stayed with the south african people to this day. >> it's wonderful to see graca talking and to remember how much his family meant to him and when he finally retired from public life, he said, don't call me, i'll call you. >> exactly. >> exactly.
6:05pm
thanks so much again, robin and george stephanopoulos is back with us right now. george, the leaders over the years were in contact with him. president clinton sought counsel from him. >> on not only how to deal with his problems during impeachment. remember, you saw the clips earlier on. he was an example of so many leaders through tough times because they would think if nelson mandela can forgive, we can forgive. if he can reconcile, we can reconcile. tony blair points out this is what he symbolized, was not only reconciliation between races but between north and south, between africa and the rest of the world, between the rich and the poor. he could speak to everyone. >> we should remind everybody, he could be very much a scold when something happened he didn't like. he weighed in against public policy in america. >> he was quite disappointed in the way that a lot of other african leaders were dealing with their own countries and dealing with problems in their own countries. i think he grieved often for the people of south africa, that
6:06pm
they could not do better after he left. >> that's right. thank you again, george. good to have you and robin with us at this hour tonight. as you said, robin, a younger generation probably didn't see his walk to freedom, but they may have known him instead from sports and from the movies, particularly that shining moment on the sports field in the movie, invictus, the name of the movie from a famous poem, the words that had nourished mandela for 27 years behind bars, reminding we must be masters of our fate and captains of our souls. >> reporter: what would he do, this new president with whites, whose pride was their rugby team, the spring box, as always people doubted
6:07pm
him, in order to know how to move white africans into the future. >> on behalf of our rainbow nation, i welcome you all. >> reporter: what happened next was played out right there in the 2009 movie invictus. by the way, mandela himself chose morgan freeman to play him. >> this is the time to build our nation. >> reporter: south africa got to host the rugby world cup off years of being banned because of apartheid and in a show of unity, nelson mandela came into the locker room in a spring box jersey. >> i want to thank you for what you have done for our country. >> thank you for what you have done for our country. >> reporter: not only did mandela cheer on the team, he rejoiced when they brought south africa to victory, leaving us with that indelible image of him wearing the uniform that had once been linked to white oppression, presenting the trophy to the captain for
6:08pm
his victory and the victory of generosity. >> entirely audacious, entirely humble at the same time. now, we want to give you some insight into the letters a father wrote to his children all those years from behind bars. nelson mandela was allowed to send one letter every six months. abc's anchor david muir was given rare access in johannesburg to his notebook, his own record of what he wrote. >> reporter: he was allowed so few letters we would practice writing them which is why there is a record of every letter he wrote. he promised his children that he would one day finish his years with them which is exactly what he did. >> reporter: they are the treasured letters that until now have been tucked away. notebooks nelson mandela saved from his 27 years in prison, the letters he wrote to his loved ones. >> he walked out with it when he left prison. he took it with him. >> reporter: he would write many letters from his cell in the island. he would carefully choose his words because he had to.
6:09pm
>> in early years he was only allowed to write one letter every six months, so he needed to know exactly what he wrote so he doesn't waste space. >> reporter: he wrote to his children about his dream of one day seeing them again. >> i do not know, my darlings when i will return. i told you that the white judge had said i should stay in jail for the rest of my life. it may be long before i come back, it may be soon, nobody knows when it will be, not even the judge who said i should be kept here. >> reporter: over the years mandela would ask for permission from the guards to write more letters than he was allowed. once after learning winnie was having heart trouble. he would make his request in their language, afrikaans hoping it would help get them to say yes. his name, nelson mandela and then his prison number, 466. >> reporter: the 466th prisoner that year, 1964.
6:10pm
he would even asked a cherished friend why have you not written? >> do you forget your friend so easily? why are you not writing. >> reporter: finally they show us a note from his 71st birthday, a visit from winnie and his children and grandchildren. his real gift would come a year later, his release. >> there is mr. nelson mandela, a free man. >> reporter: we recall that promise he made to his children more than two decades earlier. i am certain that one day i will be back home to live in happiness until the end of my days. >> one day back at home until the end of my days, the cherished letters of a father, a husband and a leader and writing at the bottom of every letter, 466, prisoner 466 in the year 1964. >> thank you, david. thinking of those prison years as we know he used everything in his power to keep his dignity, used his charm to win over enemies. he used his charm to win over enemies. we've seen him love to dance, take pride in dressing well. his fellow inmates like to say
6:11pm
he refused to be a victim and he taught them the same, taking up gardening inside prison saying it's a metaphor for life, teaching you to nourish life and weed out that which cannot succeed. as we have been saying famously, he loved to laugh. >> when i told one of my friends a few months ago that i wanted to retire, he growled at me. coach, you are retired. if that is really the case, then i should say i now announce that i am retired from retirement. >> the power of his laughter. when we come back, the news of nelson mandela's death has been rocketing around this globe. tonight we have reaction from so many of you americans absorbing the news and weighing in next.
